GUELPH — In a bizarre accident Sunday morning, the body of a deer that was struck by a vehicle flew through the air and collided with a jogger.

Holy crap.. I thought I had heard of everything. Sad that the deer didn't survive, but good that the driver and runner are both ok.

These things happen...
"Not to touch the Earth, not to see the Sun, nothing left to do but run, run, run..."
I have honestly been paranoid of this very thing, myself. That and the potential of someone to swerve to miss a deer and hit me. I see a LOT of deer when I run, especially if it's early in the AM or at dusk.
I was thinking same thing ... But the deer hitting me.
This morning on LR on a bike trail through park a Deer was like 6 inches off the path and when I cam by he had that look like he was going to cut across the path instead of turning back to the woods. He stood his ground and just passe by him as I guess he has seen his share of "joggers" cross his path before.
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it Great!
He stood his ground and just passe by him as I guess he has seen his share of "joggers" cross his path before.
I have a theory about deer. I think the smarter, braver ones are more likely to stand their ground and watch me...kind of sizing up the threat. The dumber, timid ones all take off en masse, but there is always one that will stand still and sort of analyze me. Or maybe I have it backwards. Maybe the ones that stand and watch are the stupid-heads.
